Book Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Book Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Agnieszka  lives in a beautiful valley but on the edge stands a malevolent forest, the Wood.  The people of the valley are protected from this evil by a wizard known as the Dragon but he demands a terrible price in payment.  Every ten years he takes a girl to serve him and after they are freed the girl leaves the valley and never returns.

The time for another choosing is approaching and everybody knows who it is going to be; Kasia.  Beautiful, brave, graceful Kasia who is Agnieszka’s best friend.  However, when the Dragon comes he will not choose Kasia and all things become even less certain.

I loved this book.  The characters were wonderful and the character development was stunning.  I especially liked the Dragon who started out cold and aloof but by the end of the book was a beloved character.  The Wood was also intriguing to me.  I was drawn to it by its supposed evil and the hidden stories contained within it.  The main character was astounding.  She drew me into the story and from the first page I wanted to know how she was going to overcome the problems presented to her.  As the story went on Agnieszka grew in her knowledge of the world and I thoroughly enjoyed going with her on her journey of exploration.  Overall, the story was a haunting tale of romance, hate, and finally, understanding.

Books I want(I actually need them as much as I need air) in 2018

I have a long list of all the books I need to read in 2018.  I want them all now and it is torture to wait but alas  I must.  Below is a continually growing list of all the books I want to read this year and when they come out.
